Colby Covington

One way or another, Colby Covington vs. Jorge Masvidal will be ugly.

The UFC 272 main event pits two fighters who absolutely hate one another. The fight goes down this Saturday live on pay-per-view.

Hatred and anger towards one another is common in mixed martial arts. This, though, is personal. 

Covington and Masvidal have gone back-and-forth in the press, at media events and through social media. The two absolutely do not like one another.

And it is pretty easy to see why.

Covington is an alpha male with a superiority complex. He has held the interim UFC welterweight title while battling Kamaru Usman for the belt. 

Full of self-confidence, Covington has no issues saying what he wants. He was a standout on the wrestling mats before transitioning into mixed martial arts.

Masvidal is also an alpha male who comes from more of a street background. He is a street fighter at heart in the mold of the late Kimbo Slice. 

They do share a common bond with a passion for Donald Trump, but that is for another time. 

As fans of the sport, we will all get the chance to see these two square off and settle the score. One man will be left standing more than likely, and the other will be pushing for a rematch.
